It's A Dork Quake!! Dorktown #125


This may be the first earthquake captured live on a podcast, yes? Who knew recording at Midnight could yield such things. Yes, a earthquake happens during this podcast...not quite as dramatic as it sounds...but still, it happened.

Also there's the normal drinking of craft beer from Tioga Sequoia. Bells doing funny stuff. An "Or Game". Support of indie podcasting. A music break by the Old Tire Swingers. A terrible Halloween costume from Young Bells and more.

Dorktown's Top Podcasts From September, 2012

What are the top podcasts Dorktown listened to and enjoyed during September 2012? Well the indie podcasts are becoming stronger and stronger and more interesting. Not a lot of change to this month's mainstream list. Let's have a look at them both.

In mainstream, the continuing storyline of "Emo Kev" gave Smodcast a big boost this month. But Ear Candy was able to hold it off as they are trying some new formatting and beginning to post two shows a week. WTF has fallen into a bit of a rut at the moment, it'll be interesting to see if it comes back on continues to slide.

DORKTOWN MAINSTREAM PODCAST TOP TEN - SEPTEMBER, 2012
  1. Ear Candy 
  2. Smodcast
  3. Todd Glass
  4. Professor Blastoff
  5. Nerdist

  7. WTF - With Marc Maron
  8. ESPN Fantasy Underground
  9. You Made It Weird
  10. The Session
Others receiving votes: The Duncan Trussell Family Hour, Metal Comedy Midgets.

In indie, keeping the #1 spot is a show about taking a crap...yep. But Firnecast is still knocking at the door. And look out for Tiny Odd Conversations as they were featured in iTunes "New and Noteworthy" which launched them into the Top 30 of comedy podcasts on iTunes. Crazy stuff. We may have to put them on the Mainstream List if this keeps up.
